When Lightning star Marty St. Louis rejoined his teammates Saturday on a plane ride back from Philadelphia, he knew he had to put Dominic Moore's mind at ease.
Moore's errant backhand shot during Thursday's morning skate broke St. Louis' nose, bloodied his face, swelled his left eye so he could not see and knocked him out of a game with the Rangers that would have been his 500th in a row.
So, when St. Louis saw Moore he gave him a hug.
"Anybody would feel terrible," St. Louis said Monday. "I talked to him. There was nothing he could do."
